Natural Gas Heating Equipment Rebate

Rebates of Up to $1,500 Per Unit for Qualifying High-Efficiency Natural Gas Heating and Water Heating Equipment
 

A smart way for businesses to save gas and cut energy costs is by installing high-efficiency natural gas heating and water heating equipment. 

Achieve 82-98 percent AFUE or Thermal Efficiency

High-efficiency natural gas furnaces and boilers can achieve an AFUE or thermal efficiency of up to 98 percent, compared to 70-80 percent with conventional equipment. Many are designed to recover heat energy that is discharged into the flue and return it to the heat exchanger for maximum efficiency. That means most of the energy they use goes into producing heat, instead of literally going up the chimney.

Make a smart choice you can warm up to. Install a low-intensity natural gas infrared heater.

Natural gas infrared heaters are mounted overhead to emit quiet radiant energy down to the people, objects and floor at the working level of the building. This translates to warm, comfortable conditions at the people zone and less wasted energy. Infrared heaters are particularly well-suited for situations where all of the air in a space does not need to be warmed or would be inefficient to warm. Large structures such as warehouses, loading docks, fire stations and aircraft hangars are ideal candidates for natural gas infrared heaters.

With efficiencies of up to 85 percent or more, installing high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment is a smart way for businesses to save gas and cut energy costs. Rebates let you enjoy the energy-saving benefits without paying a premium price.

When it comes to high-efficiency natural gas water heating equipment, you have two great choices. A high-efficiency domestic storage unit provides better insulation, heat traps and more efficient burners than traditional models. An on-demand (tankless) domestic water heater provides hot water when you need it without the use of a storage tank. Both are capable of reaching thermal efficiencies of 85 percent or more.

With an on-demand, or tankless water heater, the gas burner is activated by the flow of water whenever a hot water faucet is turned on. The water heater delivers a constant supply of hot water until the faucet is turned off. No water is stored, so standby heat losses are low. These water heaters can be installed centrally or at the point of use.

The Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund allows you to install high-performance gas heating and water heating equipment without paying a premium price. Rebates for qualifying equipment make it affordable to save energy and improve comfort and performance. Whether you’re replacing old equipment or installing it in new construction, you'll save money.
